Anti-Asian violence is on the rise across the country. The Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University has reported a spike of almost 150 percent last year. Fueled at first by uncertainty about the coronavirus and later fanned by racist rhetoric at the highest levels of government, people of Asian descent have suffered slurs, scapegoating, assault, and even murder.
During this virtual event, sponsored by the Office of Equity and Inclusion at the School of Medicine and Dentistry and SUNY Geneseo, attendees from a variety of backgrounds including higher education, DEI, and student affairs will gain insight from a panel that will put the problem of anti-Asian racism into historical context and suggest practical solutions to address, prevent and report it.
